fondant and humidity, please help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Chefs,

 

I was asked to use a fondant for the wedding cake of a friend. The wedding will be at the beach on summer. I'm quite worried as I have seen fondant melting in a humid environment, same as the beach. The one I saw was on a garden wedding I attended where they have these mist sprays scattered around the venue, which I think was the cause of the disaster, and I'm really worried that I would face the same issue on a beach venue. I have used fondant many times before but the cakes were placed in airconditioned venues and I also haven't tried refrigerating them ever since the first attempt I made was a disaster and the fondant melted after being placed inside refrigerator.

 

Any inputs on how I can go around the possibility of melting fondant? I really want to give my friend her dream wedding cake, can anyone help?

 

Thank you.

IMO it is direct sunlight that will kill the cake. As long as it is not 100 degrees and it is in the shade. The breeze from the ocean or lake will help.
